  • Sounds like you're having a dream vacation! I would love to do a similar trip sometime! Maybe hubby and I can find a place that rents RV's and fly out to Cali or Oregon or something, rent a camper and go sight-seeing for a week! How fun!

    Enjoy your time away and know that I am thoroughly jealous of your awesome vacation!

      • we are having a really great time! Today we went on a 2.5 mile hike through Myrtlewood groves and Old Growth Redwood forest! The first part of the trail was pretty easy and classed easy to moderate - although the river side was a pretty long steep drop off to the water. The second part was classed "moderate to steep" - that was a mile long through the deep forest! The trail was well maintained and we managed well through the entire thing. I'll try to post a couple pics when I get home.

        I'm eating fairly well - I've had a few non-primal bits and peices - but meals have been strictly primal and snacking has been minimal. I've had a couple bowls of ice cream and Rum and diet coke - thats the worst of it. We've stayed very active though so I don't think I've done any damage to my weight loss efforts.

        Tomorrow we'll try our hand at salmon fishing on the Umpqua river!

        As for the romance.......... lots of it!

          • Thats what I'm hoping for, Pedidoc!

            Jenn - you should absolutely look into coming to the Oregon Coast - it is breath takingly beautiful! There are RV rentals available. I believe RV America or something to that effect.

            Hubby is talking about going back to a motorhome in a few years. He likes the ease of simply driving in and hooking up. We would need to have a car in tow though. He says my Pathfinder would be a good car to tow - but I think something smaller would be better. A little electric something maybe. But thats years away. Perhaps when we get the mortgage paid off we can looking into it further.

            Speaking of - I'm working on a plan to pay off the mortgage in about 10 years. I need to do some more planning and figuring but I think its doable. I'm not telling hubby about it and will just surprise him with the paid off deed of ownership when we get it. I'm hoping to make it a gift for our 20th anniversary!

            Today we are heading but up to Winchester Bay RV and Marina - that is a really nice place!!!! The waves crash on the rocks that form the bay and its very loud! Hubby wants to rent a couple quad wheelers and play on the dunes. In case you don't know about the Oregon Dunes - check this out: Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia I wish I knew how to type "this" and make it connect to the website - but I haven't figured that out yet........ Anyway....... He wants to go have some fun playing in the sand. But I think its too much money for few hours of play. We'll see......

              • okay lets see if I'm smart enough to do this!

                Jenn - I found this and thought you might be interested! Its a bit pricey but could be lots of fun! Fly over, rent a car and go camping!

                  • Fishing was not successful. The places we wanted to go - and were rigged up for - were closed to native salmon. We don't do catch and release since most of the time the fish dies anyway so we found a beautiful lake threw in our lines and waited - and waited - and waited. NADA! We weren't set up for the lake fishing so it was unlikely we would have caught anything.

                    Its been a lazy day - only walked about 1/2 a mile. Feeling very sleepy. Hubby slept for a bit as the sun warmed him through the rear window of the 5th wheel. So cute. We're having filet mignon for dinner - we bought a loin at Costco and cut extra thick steaks! It is sure to taste wonderful as hubby is an excellent BBQ'r We'll have shriHamp sauteed in butter and garlic salt and spuds to go with the steak! YUMMY!

                    We're not big on the Hallmark holidays so no cards, no gifts, no expectations.

                    Thinking about heading home as the week of leisure is coming to a close. Our neighbor told me on fb that our dog has been sitting in the front yard howling for hours each day He's not used to being home all day by himself. Saturday morning we'll load her up and make the drive back to reality.

                    I've not been too terribly off track with my eating. Snacking has been mostly pork rinds and cream cheese clouds. My cheats have been some m&m's, 2 bowls of ice cream, and a few 1/2 primal home made cookies. And then there's the rum - lots of rum. I'm not apologizing cuz I'm on vacation! Saturday starts my strictness and quest for NK again!

                      • Valmason are you talking about the linking thing? Go back up and read Jenn's instructions again - it was easy. But you have to have your desired "link" already copied and ready to insert.

                        Vacation over............... will give details tomorrow. Weight - up a couple pounds but I'm suspecting its rum bloat. Hoping to see it gone by the weekend Now - to catch up with everyone........ thats going to take a few days!

                          • I think I'm having the after vacation let down. Feeling a bit down in the dumps. Back to work - back to the normal stuff. Vacation was loads of fun - lots of relaxing - lots of walking and hiking (14.5 miles) - lots of "marital bliss". Hubby smiled a LOT!

                            Last night I had a full-on blow out fibro flare! I was in a bad way for sure! So much pain in my legs that I was crying and moaning and rocking like a baby. What caused it???? we made sushi and I had some sugar. Rice and sugar. Bad combo. I won't do that again. Slept like a rock though. I think I was so exhausted from the intense pain that my body just collapsed into a deep sleep. The thing is - I don't feel rested at all. I feel drug out and wasted. The scales are also up another 3 pounds so I know there is some major inflamation going on.

                            Today will be lots of water and only real, healthy food. Breakfast: 2 TB butter with 1 whole egg + 2 yolks. Back to HFLC eating. Back to tracking calories and macros. I haven't tracked since Feb. 2nd. I was careful while on vacation not to pig out and I paid attention to when my brain said "enough". I never ate until FULL only until satisfied. I did munch on some chips, m&m's and ice cream - and I did have rum (lots). So I had my cheats and now its time to come back to eating right and continuing my weight loss efforts.

                            I've caught up on journals, but made no comments. Some I had to skip ahead to the end cuz there were 10 pages of posts! Busy people! I'm finding the need to follow fewer journals cuz I just don't have time to read them all everyday. I really miss Judg - wonder why she left........... Hope she's ok. I looked forward to her uplifting encouragement, not only in my journal, but everywhere I saw her posts. She was inspiring.

                            better get this day moving - I have to shower and be to work in a while. Here's to healthy eating - feeling wonderful - and being happy!
